Hi,

Don't need to go for SLI option. One strong card will be better option than those two. As far as budget concerns and PSU concerns.

I would actually say go with a Radeon HD 7870. Feldmarschall does bring up a good point, make sure your PSU can handle the graphics card, a good quality 550W would work but I would say 650W to be on the safe side.

Edit: Your PSU is perfect, I just saw you posted before me.

7870 would be good choice :)

7870 is cheaper but the 660ti in some cases is better. If you PSU cant handle SLI forget it for now, and get a 2nd GPU in a few months either a 2nd 660ti or 2nd 7870 when u have a better PSU :)

If you want to SLI/ crossfire in the future then from everything I have been reading the nvidia is the only choice. there are some very technical reasons why but micro stuttering is solved on a software protocol for AMD chips and a hardware protocol for Nvidia. however I think right now the best way to go is an AMD chip for a single card setup. The best card (price/performance) right now is the Tahiti LE made by powercolor or by club3d. the club3d is available on amazon.uk (I see three left with more on the way according to club 3d) as the 7870XT and the powercolor ax7870 is on new egg. both cards overclocked will best a 7950. I think sapphire made one also under the 7870XT name but I am nor sure.
if interested make sure it has the same specs as this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
1500MHz x4 (6.0 Gbps) for memory

also right now powercolor is giving a mir and Free Bioshock & Tomb Raider game coupon w/ purchase, limited offer

The radeon is the better single card right now. If you sell the two games that come with it right now the deal is really good. The card I mentioned above is based on the same Tahiti die the 7950 is and can be cross fired with it also. I really like the 660 but the price is a little to high. The 3 gigs is nice but not needed unless you are pushing multi monitors or 1440 resolution. All of these cards are great cards and evga is my favorite company to work with.

i have 1 monitor 20" and tv connected 40"
and sometimes i`m playing games on tv too... so i need performance too.
and all my life i had nvidia. and i like evga.
but maybe its time to change :) 
i don`t know...

I have loved EVGA for a while now but i recently bit the bullet and went to radeon after doing a bunch of reading and I went the route of the powercolor ax7870. with two free games to sell and getting the same board as the 7950 for $235 or approx. 185 euro I could not resist. I will sell this card in a year and upgrade to a 3 gig card then but for now I just do not think there is much to gain after the ax7870. all reviews say it overclocks to be the equal of the 7950 and there is little to gain after the 7950. If money is not that tight then a 660ti is a great card but for myself I like to always find the best deal. If you want some links to reviews of the powercolor or the club 3d let me know there are a bunch out there. toms hardware rates this tahiti le as a best price/performance winner right now btw.
Size of the screen does not matter btw only the resolution you are playing at. so your 40' will not need more power to run.

I am also inthe market for a good keyboard and I have been reading allot. so far i like the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate for around a $100 of 77 euro. they also produce a $50 cheaper version that is the same but no backlighting or usb passthroughs. both have gotten very good reviews everywhere and it seems to be one of the few mechanical keyboards that combines good gaming abilities and functions with a really good typing experience also. the only gripe so far is that it is a little loud

if i go for gtx 660ti 3gb i have like 140 £ left for keyboard.
i think i`ll get this gpu and buy razer death stalker keyboard.
and will save money for Jack Daniels when i`ll launch this :)

the thing that swayed me was the two free games I sold for $75 otherwise i would have spent a few more dollars. the 660 ti is a great card. I will have to check out the death stalker.

I just looked into the anansi and deathstalker but they do not appear to be mechanical keyboards. I am only really into the market for a mechanical plank. the feel and response seems so much greater.
